Zone Driving


I have came to the conclusion after a while of paying attention to this. How people walk reflects how they drive. So if your a bad driver you probably dont pay much attention when your walking. You should try watching somebody that you know who is a bad driver and watch them walk through crowds, they will usually cause people to go around them without having to make an effort to find openings in the crowd in front of them.

There is a big difference between a reckless driver and a high speed driver. Some people will say driving fast is dangerous but all that aside I would like to explain the difference. A reckless driver doesnt take the traffic in front of them into consideration, and not being prepared for a bad situation, and not knowing the limits of the vehicle they are in. That is why you see a lot people flip cars here because they are reckless and expect an SUV to handle like a sports car. Those people are just bad.

A high speed driver is someone who can categorize the traffic in front of them in Zones. Thats why I call it Zone Driving, because they dont even know they are doing it. There are some people who I cant ride with because they are just horrible drivers be it at low or high speeds, they get stuck in a situation and dont know how to get out of it. A Zone Driver finds lines through traffic, figuring out the flow to the best of his/her abilities while taking into consideration the unknown factor to provide a decent safety cushion for themselves and people around them. Its not necessarily speeding the whole time, but judging traffic to find the best openings. Most everyone is comfortable when they have no traffic around them, and I usually try to find that spot. I will speed up to get away from traffic, but slow down to keep myself away if Im in no hurry.

At some points when Im in a hurry my brain kicks into high gear and I start looking at the road differently. It becomes lines on the road for me to follow with it changing every second, and taking the choice of choosing the best possible line to accomplish my goal. I have to factor how far the turn is, and how I could make it without causing too much of a mess or whether I should just wait. Some people will say that you should just be patient and wait, and if you want to wait then please wait. Im going on ahead.
